This release provides maps and a correspondence file pertaining to the 2011 edition of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). The ASGS replaces the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) as the new geographical framework of the ABS.

This product provides maps and a correspondence file for Tourism Regions for each state and the Northern Territory. Tourism Regions are defined in consultation with the relevant national and state/territory tourism organisations. They each consist of a group of Statistical Areas Level 2 (SA2). SA2s are a small spatial unit of the ASGS. The correspondence file provides Tourism Region names and their corresponding SA2 names and codes.

Any changes to Tourism Regions are applied to products issued from the March quarter reference period in the following year. For example, the 2011 maps and correspondence apply to the March, June, September and December quarter 2012 of the Survey of Tourist Accommodation, Australia (cat. no. 8635.0) releases.

The ASGS will be implemented in the Survey of Tourist Accommodation publication, from March quarter 2012, scheduled for release in June 2012. Further information regarding this implementation will be provided in an information paper to be released in early 2012.

For further information on the ASGS please refer to the ABS website at https://www.abs.gov.au/geography.

State and territory Tourism Region maps are available through the downloads section of Tourism Region Maps and Correspondence file, Australia, 2011(cat. no. 9503.0.55.001).
